Parker's First Halloween!

I can't believe that it's already Parker's 3rd Halloween and next year we will have "little brother" here to celebrate with us! Parker has never been a big fan of wearing costumes and the first year was no exception!

Happy Halloween!!

More Fall Fun!

Sunday night was our annual family pumpkin carving night! We only did one pumpkin this year. Mainly because it was really cool outside and we were ready to get back in! :)

The finished product!!

We went to the Halloween party tonight for the local moms group that I have joined. We went with our neighbors, Owen and Eli. Parker had a great time and was all "sugared up" by the time we got home!

THis was the best one I got of the three of them. I took about 20 to get this one.

Sweet Eli enjoying a treat...

Super Silly Boys!

We have really enjoyed all of the Fall Activities in our area. We are thinking about going to Boo at the Zoo on Friday night and Parker's school/church is having a carnival on Sunday and then Trick or Treating Monday night! Should be a fun time!

Come on ride that train...

We went Sunday on the Pumpkin train with our friends Christi, Todd, Owen, and Eli. It was such a fun day! You go on a 20 minute train ride. It's a real train, too! Parker was THRILLED! The train drops you off at the pumpkin patch. They have some cute little activities there for the kids to do and then you take the train ride back.

One great thing about living in a bigger city is all of the fun things to do!

Fun with Friends at Disney World

Disney World was an excellent trip and we were so blessed to be able to go. It was even more special because we were able to spend a little time with dear friends. We had a two day overlap with the Mann's and we spent some time together.
Parker was THRILLED to get to see William and Edburd at Disney World.

I got to hold sweet Ava! It was all good until I wasn't holding her properly according to the ride operator and we got the ride shut down! Oops!

Parker, Edward, and William at the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party. They had fun wearing their costumes and Trick or Treating at Disney!

We were also so lucky to see the Thompson's at Ohana's for dinner. It was our last night and their first night. We were worn out by this point but really enjoyed our dinner!

Disney Part 1

We had an AMAZING time on our family Disney trip!! I can't believe that I have never been there. 2011 has been a hard year for our family and it was nice to get away and just have some fun! We stayed at a nice place called Carribean Beach and we would recommend it to anyone else looking for a place to stay. It was very quiet and pretty convenient to the parks. Parker had a BALL! He was such a trooper!

I know this is a picture overload and this is only a portion of the pictures I took on the trip!

More to come!

Country Market Pumpkin Patch

We went to the pumpkin patch today in Zionsville and we had a blast! The weather was cool, but nice.

The Country Market at the pumpkin patch is known for their homemade donuts! HOLY COW! They are delicious! I could've eaten 3!! (But I didn't!) They were sooo good!

We were so surprised that Parker agreed to go for a pony ride. He was a little nervous at first but he loved it! We were so proud of our big boy!

Parker's second pony ride!

He first asked for a blue balloon but we talked him into a football instead... :)

Fun with mommy on the hayride!

Trying to choose the perfect pumpkin!

Daddy and our pumpkin!
